    • Description:
      A Drop of News is a forum for highlighting state and local waterborne disease surveillance activities, and giving informal updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about waterborne disease and outbreak surveillance initiatives. With the rush of the summer months now over, A Drop of News now takes time to address a broader range of topics related to water and health. Begin by meeting DPD’s new drinking water  epidemiologist and reading about the 100th anniversary of drinking water chlorination in the United States. Continue to page 3 to learn about collaborative drinking water activities and an upcoming EPA meeting. Page 4 provides an interesting update about the CSTE-initiated workgroup on Naegleria fowleri, as well as a new web resource for investigating unexplained respiratory disease outbreaks, which are sometimes caused by waterborne agents. A Healthy Water web site update is included on page 5. An exciting new program about laboratory testing proficiency for Legionella follows on page 6. Revisit the summer on page 7 with New Mexico’s efforts to curb a cryptosporidiosis outbreak and better understand swimmer behaviors. Page 8 contains resources for public inquiries, as well as a timeline for launching the National Outbreak Reporting System (NORS). Finish by finding out more about the year-round Model Aquatic Health Code project on page 9 and efforts to address issues associated with a lack of water on page 10.
